Editors Choice: Photo of the Day

Photographer: Gareth McCormack

Today we feature a stunning seascape of Glassillaun Beach in County Galway by Gareth McCormack. Gareth has managed to capture a rainbow in this composition but explains:

"It's impossible to plan a photo of a fleeting optical phenomenon such as a rainbow. Though Ireland's changeable weather means they're more common here than in many countries, being in a beautiful location and having your camera in hand when one appears is pure luck. It was a matter of right place, right time, for this winter shot from Glassillaun beach. A polariser allowed the colours of the rainbow to register more vibrantly."

I like the soft natural light in this shot and the panoramic perspective helps create the impression you are standing right on the rocks looking out to the sea. This picture highlights how unique, diverse and changeable the Irish landscape can be. You can browse or buy more of Gareth's prints here.
